Hi everyone. As some of my friends may know, I've taken up running this May as a task to achieve for having turned a nice number 30 this year. Along with running, I'd like to also raise funds for a cause.
TWC2 (Transient Workers Count Too) is an organization that I have volunteered with for the past 2 years. They do research on migrant workers issues in Singapore. They also provide helplines to workers who needs consultation on work related matters and free meals to those who are injured and out of jobs.
Through volunteering with them I have learned much about migrant workers in Singapore- something which I think is important because we are living and co-existing with increasing numbers of migrants. I learned about their reasons for coming here to work, the difficulties they face, and their hardship as guest laborers in an affluent city. In other words, theirs is a drastically different world from mine despite us living in the same country.
TWC2 needs funds to pay its staff in order to operate and exist. Without these hardworking and dedicated people, all the programs, services and research will not be possible!
So please donate to TWC2 while I will try my very best to complete half a marathon (21km), my first ever marathon run on the 4 Dec (there's only 2 weeks left)!
